Pull the headlight out of the car, take the bulbs out and use a hairdryer to evaprate the moisture. Next, run a bead of clear silicone in the joint where the lense meets the housing. Check all the bulb gaskets , make sure they're still there, also check the turn signal goes back in tight. Get some rubbing compound (EG TurtleWax), high grit sandpaper(if they're oxidized badly) 1000, 2000 grit, and some polishing compund (same). Start water sanding them starting from the 1000 next to the 2000, rubbing compund, polishing compund (use with a soft cotton cloth, and make sure to keep it moist an electric buffer would really help). Last step I use ScratchX plastic polish to seal it and make it really shiny. Use it every week or so and your headlights will keep nice.

True, but either way he'd still have to get some new headlights b/c of how hazy his OEM headlights are!!!

Look at pic #3. See how the water hides on the mirror? I hate it when I forget to dry that off and then take it for a 15 min ride and the window is all spotted up.
